Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
and don't eat any candy that looks like the wrappers have been tampered with.

Quote of the Week

Flames are flying all around this room tonight.
Now there's nothing we can do
to make each other feel all right.
Instead of trying to tell me how to be
just focus on tomorrow instead of on me.
"Nothing Happening"- Ben Kweller

What It's About

The last couple weeks have been crazy. Lots of ups and downs, lots of firsts, lots of new things, and lots of old things resurfacing. I must remember, though, this is what I signed up for. And if I thought that I was going to just cruise my way through this and have everything come naturally, then there would be no point to all of this. But I actually am really really happy with things for the first time in a long time. And even if things happen and I can't be perfect at them, I still feel like I'm doing what I should be. So that's good. That's great.

I've come to conclusion that I put a lot of pressure on myself. Way too much. And I freak out leading up to everything, and then after it happens I think, "now why did I make such a big deal out of that?" Because in the grand scheme of things, this is what life is about. The bumps in the road. When I'm old, and my memory is even worse than it is now, I won't remember the days that ran smoothly. I'll be more likely to remember the big picture. So right now I'm in the process of learning to chill out and laugh a lot of things off. In this life I am planning for myself that is going to be a very important thing to be able to do. I know I am going into this field because I want to help others, but as they keep telling us, you must be able to take care of yourself, too! If you don't, then you are in no position to help anyone else. So, I'm working on that. Being less hard on myself.

Quote of the (last few) Weeks

For just one chance to find
Love was someone that you loved to find
For just the sense to try
To walk ahead and leave the pain behind
If the days aren’t easy and the nights are rough
When they ask you what you’re thinking of
Say love, say for me love
Say love, say for me love
Living of Love- The Avett Brothers

Fall Clothes on the Sartorialist

I was just catching up on all the Sartorialist photos I missed, and I must say, some of them make me so excited for fall clothes! Cute and snuggly.

Are these tights? Or leggings? Either way, I want them immediately. I really like this hair style too, I'm going to try to figure it out.

And I love everything about this basically. That shirt underneath the jacket looks so cozy, and that scarf, well, I think I need to make myself a gray scarf like that asap. Maybe that will be a good distraction from the midterm paper I have to write today.

This picture makes me want to start wearing my cute hats. It's finally cold enough and I definitely didn't wear them enough last year. This sweater also looks amazing. I wish I could pull off the short hair look, but I've learned it's just something that will never happen for me again. Everytime I cut my hair short I end up hating it and spend the rest of my life growing it out. Oh well. Rapunzel hair it shall be.

Oh hey!

I'm the worst! I have been so so so so busy that I haven't had time to sit down and write a blog post. I really miss it, and I really miss whoever still comes to visit here from time to time. When I don't even have time to put together a quote of the week, that's when you know I have zero free time. Until today! Saturday mornings are my absolute favorite time, especially on pretty October days when I can open my window and a nice refreshing breeze comes in.

Fall is my favorite season. I wish it was longer. It's even nicer because I get to be in New Jersey this year for autumn and it is so beautiful, and you can go to the farms and get apple cider and cider donuts and pumpkins and take your picture by cheesy things (see above.) That picture was taken two years ago, when I still had blonde hair.

So what's been going on in my life? Tons of midterms, lots of time spent at the internship (I've starting seeing my first clients!) and I've also been commuting into NYC to go to my classes a couple days a week. I took this picture of Washington Square Park with my phone yesterday:

Not bad at all for a phone, huh? Those darn droids. I spend a lot of time here between classes.

I also had my 23rd birthday last sunday! Because I took all last weekend to celebrate, I am seriously behind on reading and homework, but it was very worth it. I ate delicious food and laughed with my friends and my family all weekend. That'll be a different post, I think, with more pictures, but my sister put up a little post on her blog about what we ate that day.

This is my birthday cake, artfully decorated my Melina. It's vanilla cake with chocolate frosting and bananas in the middle.

I hope you are all doing well! I will try to catch up on my quotes of the week. I really love making them.
